Kelly’s keynote speech on Sunday at the SCBWI conference just took my breath away. She was so eloquent and honest about her writing journey. Kelly writes non-fiction books about fictional things, such as Bigfoot and ghosts. She visits 60-70 schools each year. Busy lady.
Writers of kid-lit are known for their warmth. From left: Tera Stivers; Deb Marshall; Linda Duddridge; and Shannon Grogan. Yours truly stands behind them. They made the second day of the SCBWI conference sooo much better. Thanks, guys!
